Spring-Inspired Card

I have a Springtime card up on the HSN blog today using the AMAZING Next Dimension 3D Embellishment Sticker Kit from Lisa Bearnson. I adore this kit! Just look at the variety of dimensional stickers that are in this kit!


Here’s a closer look at each sheet.







I put together a quick card using these adorable stickers and my sewing machine.


Feel free to use a different sentiment to fit your needs.

Giveaway Alert: eBrush

Good morning, crafty friends! Lately, I’ve had the opportunity to play with all kinds of new products and goodies as I create projects for Lisa Bearnson’s upcoming show on HSN (Don’t forget! March 24th! *wink*) One of the brand new products I’ve had a chance to work with is the eBrush tool by Craftwell. The eBrush turns your favorite markers into spray art. And guess what?! Today Lisa Bearnson is giving one away on her blog!




There are many ways you can use this tool. Here is a look at the first few projects I created while playing around with this machine.

Use die cuts as a mask to create fun backgrounds for your cards and pages. (Snowflake background, “Let It Snow” title)


On this card, I created the sky by spraying the ink across this cloud border several times. (So much fun!) Here’s a look at the background before adding the sentiment sticker.


And here it is after. (Sidenote: This sticker comes from the awesome Mega Sticker Kit which will also be on the March 24th shows. Stamped images colored with Chromatix markers.)


And here’s a fun, splatter treatment I made on this black and white card. (Typewriter Sketch Pen Image)


If you’d like to add this tool to your crafting arsenal, head over to Lisa’s blog and enter the Rafflecopter eBrush Giveaway!

Have a great day!


Shake It Like a Polaroid Picture … and a Wedding Card

Happy Friday! I’m up on two blogs today with a couple of new projects. First, I have a wedding card over on the 3 Birds Design blog using their really fun Quilled Cardmaking kit and a wedding cut from the Creative Memories Cricut Cartridge called Divine Wedding. There’s something so soothing about making quilled flowers, and I love all of the die cut sentiments and pieces in this kit. It makes cardmaking quick and easy. Here’s a little peek of my card. See the full project along with all the details on the 3 Birds Design Blog.



Next, I’m up on the Noel Mignon Blog today with another layout using the February 2014 Book of Love kit.

Growing up my mom painstakingly helped us create the most darling Valentine’s Day boxes to take to school. I have such fond memories of her creativity and ingenuity and feeling so happy that she would take the time to help me make something so special. I’ve tried to continue that same tradition with my kids. This year, I used SVG Cuts files to create Valentine boxes for my girls. Maryn requested a giant ice cream cone box (from the Ice Cream Birthday SVG Cuts collection), and Camryn wanted a frilly, pink castle (from the Bedtime Stories SVG Cuts collection). They turned out really cute! Here’s a snapshot I took of the girls last Friday with their boxes.


The reason I bring this up, is because my layout on the Noel Mignon blog feature the box that Maryn and I made for her last year using a circus tent cut file by SVG Cuts (from the Summer Street Carnival collection) and cute critters from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge. (Here’s a post about from last year.)



The papers from the kit that I used are mostly from the My Mind’s Eye Cupid’s Arrow collection. I love when a Valentine collection includes a little blue in it. It is such a nice compliment to red and pink and means I can also use them on more everyday types of projects. Even though this page is about Valentine’s Day, the design could easily be used for any occasion!


The Polaroid camera cut and Polaroid frame are by SVG Cuts. The camera is from the darling Bicycle Built for Two collection and the frame is actually a freebie that you can pick up for yourself RIGHT HERE. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder to give the white layer some fun texture, and then added a My Mind’s Eye enamel heart sticker, and red button tied with twine for a little dimension. I also added the title to the flash of the camera with the gray letter stickers included in the kit. Doesn’t it look cute against that amazing red foil chevron paper? It just makes me happy.

Inside the frame, I placed one of the Jillibean Soup 3×4 cut-apart cards from the kit. The bottom phrase on the 3×4 card was trimmed off and used to accent the row of small photos at the bottom of the page.

I layered together the two chipboard hearts that came in the kit along with more My Mind’s Eye enamel stickers (arrows) and a Jillibean Soup word sticker. It was the perfect little accent for this corner of the page.


Thanks for stopping by today! And here’s wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with fun and a little crafting!

See you next time!
